Future DLC’s for Wargame Red Dragon

Postby The_Mighty_King » Wed 7 Mar 2018 06:49

The last DLC that came out for this great game was in December of 2016 and it has been over a year since we got a DLC for the game. It was promised that we would get a large assortment of Nations added to the game.

Think you have what it takes to enlist into the military? You sure about that?

They said they would do the top three nations and that's what they did. And there are like 22 nations in the game. There definitely isn't a shortage of nations to play with.

TBH, Finland was a poor choice.
Finland used mostly export weapons like BMPs, T-72s, and Saab 35s. Finland only flavor was using mixed NATO and PACT equipment like T-55AM Marksman. All Finland's vehicles were already ingame.

Italy would've been a better choice, tons of local vehicle designs, and bursting with flavor.

Finland was the #1 request for an additional nation since ALB.
People knew exactly by the release of the "Reds" DLC what they were asking for ... :)

Nope. The amount of broken units really took me by surprise.

I am quite shocked to see Romania and Bulgaria scoring so low, they both have much, muuuuuch more to offer than, say, Vietnam.
The SEAD never bothered me anyway.

I really don't want any more DLC's for wargame, the last batch are still broken and there is zero chance they will ever be balanced properly.
I hope your buratino's die screaming.

I 100% agree. WG lost me with the last fantasy nation DLCs...

Indeed, Italy was a no-brainer. I never understood the appeal of Finland either and why so many people were clamoring for it. It is quite puzzling.

This was my take on Finland before the poll:

- no domestic equipment whatsoever besides the XA-180/185 (and it is already ingame)
- most of its units are already present in the game
- operate mostly obsolete hardware, especially Air Force, so not competitive as a standalone nation... unless Eugen ignores the rules and give it many OOTF prototypes or fantasy units which is exactly what happened
- neutral nation with a foot in both camps so doesnt really fit in the Red vs Blue paradigm, few coalition options
- defensive doctrine -> would not get involved in a war beyond its borders, let alone in Asia (minor point though, i could compromise on that)

"Given all this, why would people want this nation added?" the more rational side of me thought. Well, the rest is history and here we are now with a completely unrealistic portrayal of Finnish Defence Forces circa 1991 with a heavy reliance on OOTF prototypes, fantasy units (R-77-armed MiG-29, fictional mortar carriers, Telak 84, Mi-8 gunship, MD500 TOW...) and meme units in order to make it a viable nation. While all armies in the game arent perfect representations of their real world equivalents, Finland is by far the less accurately represented nation. I am more or less OK with the addition of Israel & Yugoslavia (with some reservations) but Finland is a big thumb down for me. It damaged the "realistic" setting of the game and the immersion and suspension of disbelief suffered as a result. Poor decision.
